I am an experienced, fully qualified integrative counsellor and a member of BACP. As an integrative counsellor I am qualified to offer a range of approaches including Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focussed Brief Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
As every individual is unique, these models provide me with the flexibility to match an approach to meet your needs and how you like to work. I have been privileged to work with individuals facing a number of different issues and have witnessed counselling to be a positive and empowering experience for many. It provides an opportunity to explore personal matters and to spend some time thinking about how you feel and what you want. I am proficient in the treatment of a wide range of issues that manifest as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, panic attacks, stress and phobias; with extensive experience in the field of eating disorders. The quality of the surroundings are important, in my view, to the effectiveness of therapy. I strive, therefore, to make therapy as effective and affordable as possible for every client and for my practice to provide a safe, confidential, tranquil and supportive environment. My office is within 3-5 minutes walking distance of the nearest railway station, bus stops are in the same street and car parking is free and always available (100+ space car park) beside the premises.
As a counsellor, I commit to working alongside you, exploring issues and feelings that may have been hidden or suppressed for a long time. In return I can offer you respect, warmth, genuineness and trust at all times, with the purpose of helping you to understand yourself better.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and if you require any further information I would be more than happy to help.
COVID-19 UPDATE: A client’s physical safety is a prerequisite. My premises meet all regulatory safety guidelines (fire doors, smoke alarms etc…). Details of this and/or the additional safety measures that have been taken in respect of COVID-19 are available on request. Also, I am now offering online counselling via Zoom to prospective clients.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
